March 23 – Tickets for the Wembley play-off between the national team champions of Europe and South America – dubbed the Finalissima 2022 – go on sale Thursday with category 3 tickets priced at £25.
The match between Italy and Argentina will be played as a midweek, evening kick-off game on Wednesday 1 June.
The highest priced Category 1 tickets will cost £55, while category 2 cost £40. There is also a Ticket+ package for £99 which gives access to the Wembley Club level, a premium lounge, a complimentary drink and access to a pay bar and food facilities.

It is 29 years since the champions of UEFA and Conmebol played each other. Then Argentina, with Diego Maradona in the line-up, beat Denmark in a penalty shoot-out. In 1985 France beat Uruguay in the inaugural competition.
A UEFA press release said the Europe vs South America contest “will serve as a catalyst for the global development of football – uniting countries, continents, and cultures, while also demonstrating to fans around the globe that football can be a force of good in turbulent times.”
Tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis.
